3 Days to Celebrate! 

What are you doing next week? One of the most significant days to ever happen just to honor The Savior Jesus, The Word at beginning and one who sacrificed His Life to save the world 🌎 If there are no plans, I encourage you visit HopeNYC for an amazing Good Friday service: NEXT WEEK April 14th 6pm. Visit the HopeNYC website for information, directions, weekly services and additional upcoming events. 


This Good Friday service will have an amazing Word for you. There’s worship in music, the holy communion, gifts for first time guests and washing of the saints feet (amazing yet optional) The opportunity to do what Jesus did when He washed the foot of His disciple. Just look around, pick someone in the room or a friend. Towels and buckets will be provided. 


Bright and early on Saturday morning! It’s time to have fun at HopeNYC’s 9th annual Easter egg hunt! Everyone’s invited to spend a sunny morning with us at Baisely park while kids ages 1-9 explore with their easter baskets hunting around 10,000 colored candy-filled eggs. Finding a gold or silver egg gives them an amazing opportunity to win a bicycle or scooter along with some other fantastic prizes. Going home with dozens of eggs filled with candy is good enough for me 😀 The best part is, Admission is free! 


The Priest, Pilate’s wife, and Peter! What went on in their minds after witnessing the most horrific mind-blowing scene in all humanity. Come see their view of the situation in a production where the story begins right at the start of service at 8am. Too early for you? Catch the 11am service! This broadway style yet Holy Spirit annointed production is filled with a life-changing message, dance, and an atmosphere that will take you back to the past where it all happened. If you are in New York make your way to Rockaway blvd for an exciting Easter service. 

How Big is our God?

Easter Sunday! What a bright & sunny morning. The birds are chirping & the weather is warm. Most importantly! The Son has risen! What a fabulous day to dress up into a fancy suit or a floral dress. Such a magnificent morning to acknowledge Jesus & to go to church! After all you are filled with gladness & you are excited to hear that message!

So, you’re on your way to HopeNYC & finally you arrive! The first thing you see are the lovely girls dancing outside on the platform. Bright smiles, vibrant colors, golden make up, It really feels like Easter!

Going to church seems like a good idea, until you climb the stairs to find a boy sitting at the top dressed completely in black covered in ropes. His shirt says MISERY & his gloom grabs your attention.

11102793_1082764265074369_5934821358452136768_n

You walk away wondering what his deal was & all of a sudden, an angry man charges right at you with a snarl but luckily he was tied up. Whats his deal? I don’t know but his shirt says ANGER.

10441058_1084187808265348_4246690153710450786_n

You thought you got away from these maniacs but you gotta pass the metal fence before you get to the door of the church. All of a sudden you notice that you are being starred down by a girl with disconetent in her face. Her shirt says HATE.

11115592_1084187798265349_1398300918368898924_n

You try walking away then another girl in ropes stands nearby. She actually runs frantic as she paces the floor in panic. Her shirt says FEAR.

11141142_1084187828265346_7197723327464594903_n

  You’ve finally made it inside. It’s all normal now. You just need to walk up the stairs & make it to the sancuary to grab yourself a seat. Maybe notify an usher to get rid of the loons hanging outside. All of a sudden DEPRESSION blocks your way up! She hides her face with her hair as she pities every piece of her life.

11059400_1084188011598661_2813511036836572940_n

You ask yourself is it still Easter? Where are the colors? Where are the crosses? Where is the joy? You finally make it up to the beautiful & holy sancuary & then feel safe again. It is not to your surprise that it is already packed with people. In fact it is a full dark house. Where is the light? The place is dimmly lit! All of a sudden you hear whispers. You may or may not be eavesdropping but you can’t help but to hear mulpile conversations going on in the room. Conversations touching different topics like money, love, depression, death, stress, cancer, healing, faith, blessings, deliverance, miracles & more. Who is talking? By now, you think you’ve gone crazy because you hear voices. Well, You are not crazy! We all hear it! The voices were actually recorded by the young adults of HopeNYC (LIFT OFF) & their conversations were being played out loud on the speakers. Why? to scare? No to minister.

(I wish I can attach the mp3 audio file of the voices here but I need to have Premium account to do so)

As the voices stopped the service started. All of sudden, sounds began to play & a great voice began to speak, the lights came on at the command of that voice. The service was moving, startling & beautiful. It was assuring that everyone sitting on a chair that morning was at the right place at the right time.Throughout the service, there were light shows, videos, spoken words, dances & 10 min sermons. On stage the screen gave an imax-like experience & it showed beautiful images of the galaxy & gorgouse views of the NYC skyline. This was a HopeNYC service like never before! It all revolved around one simple question: How Big is Our God?

He is so big that His hand spans the universe.

God is so big that every knee shall bow & every tounge will confess that He is Lord. Everyone on, above & beneath the Earth.

God is so big that words can’t describe Him.

God is so big that you can never stop making music for Him. You can always sing Him your own song.

God is so big that His burial & ressurection is known & celebrated worldwide.

God is so big that we can’t make a sound loud enough even if our voices united!

Now, there is another question: Why would The Big God of the universe want a relationship with us? It is just mind-blogging yet so simple. His love for You is bigger than you know!

GodBless!
